Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40S2000 40 in. LCD HDTV
I looked at your screen shot of the symptom you are experiencing and it would appear that the very bottom and possibly the next one up CCFL (cold Cathode Florescent Lamp(s)) could be in trouble. If the inverter board(s) was bad the tv would just shut down and blink 4 times but seeing the tv operational but just a dark area near the bottom I would have to say you need to investigate the CCFL problem and replace the affected lamps.

I have the same tv with the same problem. My tv is about 3 1/2 years old. I took it to the shop yesterday and today they told me that I had a bad lcd panel and a bad FL1 circuit board. They also told me it was going to be $3800.00 dollars to fix. I am now on my way to buy another tv, needless to say it will not be a Sony. Sony knows about this problem and refuse to do anything about it. Good luck.
